Harambee Starlets are hopeful of beating Ghana in their quest for 2020 Olympics Qualifications.

Assistant head coach Jackeline Juma says her side has all it takes to jump over the hurdle when they face each other in October, for the most coveted spot.

“I believe in my players’ readiness to get another win and proceed to the last round. Ghana is a tough team since we played against them in 2016 and managed 1-1 draw but with enough zeal and practice we shall be able to perform in the game,” she said.
